    What would people like to see for next season and the in between season fun runs?

    Naturally the British DLC is high on the list to be included and could be used both in fun runs and the season proper. Also ideas such as single make fun runs can work well and we've done them in the past.

    We feel the 10 round season format with a mid season break is working well but any feedback in that area is welcome too. This is also an opportunity to point out any potential dates that we might want to avoid when putting the Season 6 calendar together.

    Season 6 Ideas Posted So Far:
    • Split season mixed class: Half the field does GT4 for 1st half of season while other half do GT3, then everyone swaps car class for 2nd half of season.
    • Mixed GT3/GT4 season similar to Season 4
    • GT3 season similar to Season 5
    • Maserati GT4, Oulton Park, Thunderstorms (wow surely the most popular option!)
    • Restrict time acceleration to 1x for sprints and 2x for enduros
    • Drop the Supersprints from the season (these are 2x30 min races with no pitstops)
    • Double season break - one each after the 4th and 8th rounds
    • Using limited tyre sets in all or selected rounds
    • Single make season of Cup or Trophy class
    • 5 teams and 5 makes
    We'd like to know how popular (or not) these ideas are so please post your thoughts. Apologies if I've overlooked any ideas.

    Also what do people think about rounds falling on Monday public holidays? Does it generally make it better for a round or is it harder to make those rounds?

    I reckon the mixed class racing added some extra spice. Maybe half the season in one class, and the other half in the other class? The current mix of sprints and enduros is good.

    Agree that 10 rounds with a break in the middle is good. Feels like a proper season. Would like to try the British tracks in the GT4's and GT3's :thumbsup:

    I’d really love to have some multi-class action in the break for now I figure I should add, 3 Italian rounds? I really enjoyed the multi class season but want to be in the GT4 this time.

    Good point about the big time multipliers. It's fun to race with night and day transitions, but it makes the rain variation too quick, with the forecast only being 10 mins or less in advance. It would be nice if you could accelerate time just for night/day transitions, and still leave weather varying more slowly and predictably.

    Might be fun to have a single car with a fixed setup for one of the fun runs. Maybe using some of the older cars like the 2015 GTR or the Gallardo.

    I think a mixed GT3/GT4 season would be fun again. I prefer the shorter races...let's say up to 90 min.

    The BOP is designed to equalise performance for a race of 60 minutes with one pitstop where the minimum is to add one litre of fuel (ie. you can do more, adding one litre is the minimum). This according to SRO and Panky (game developer). Might be worth keeping that in mind.

    Personally I'd prefer a series of races for GT3 cars with one car selected for the duration - as in Season 5.

    Looking forward to the next race!

    We can do fun runs where we all have to choose a car with same country of origin?

    Fun run ideas: Front > Middle > Back
    Week 1 - Single make Front Engine (Jaguar?) - British GT track
    Week 2 - Super Trofeo - Misano or British GT
    Week 3 - Porsche Cup - Laguna Seca or British GT

    Other factors to create interest, 3-4 minute qualifying (essentially 1 lap)

    I would of been keen for another multi class seanon and driving a gt4 this time.
    Not that my opinions matter now as i managed to badly break my wrist on my holiday and no sim racing for me for at least 3 months.
    But i might look at streaming the races useing the spectator function though.
